My THEME for the A to Z challenge 2017 is an ongoing speculative fiction story featuring telepathy.

Each letter post is titled and inspired by a commonly misused word or phrase.

The story started with All Intents and Purposes.

Your Point is Moot



I didn’t knock him out to exact revenge. I did it so we could be free.

Ora motions to the artic area of the cave. And now we’re both out of the room with the impossible door. What was the next part of your plan?

I blow on my fingers as I jog slowly in place. I didn’t think that far. Letting a man freeze to death wasn’t on the agenda.

Okay. I’m giving you leeway here. Instead of ordering you to take his coat, I’m letting it be your choice. But to prove that your point is moot, I could kill him now. You’d take the coat off a dead man, right? To save your life, I mean.

What kind of little girl is this?

Don’t kill him! I kneel down to remove his coat. His body moves, up and down, with his every breath. I tell myself that he’s evil. This is the guy who kidnapped two children.

But he thought he had a good reason.

Ora, I can’t do it. I can’t let him freeze. Please, help me drag him down to the room where we were held. Then I can take his coat. No one has to die.

If you had the power to ask one question one time and have it answered honestly, what would you ask and to who?

  1. I’d ask Lee Harvey Oswald if he killed JFK, either alone, in conjunction with someone and if someone asked/paid him to do it.

  3. I think Ora is a hard little girl and won’t help drag him anywhere – I both like and dislike her lol! I really want to read more in this world though – will you be writing more telepathy stories after April? 🙂
